You CANNOT leave out the accents or it'll cha nge the meaning of a word. The syllable with the accent is the emphasized syllable in a word.

19. Formation of Plural Nouns If a word ends in an -cin, -tad, -dad, or -tud, it'll be feminine. Also, if you a re talking about a female, you will use the feminine articles (la seora). Words ending in an -o are masculin e. Days of the week are also masculine. And if you're talking about a male, use the masculine articl es. There are some exceptions to these rules and you just have to memorize them. To make words endi ng in a vowel plural, add an -s (libro = libros). Add an -es to make words ending in a constin ant (papel = papeles). If a word ends in a -z, change the z to a c and add -es (cruz = cruces). After maki ng the word plural, you must make the articles plural also. There are very few exceptions to making word s plural.

27. Conjugating Regular Verbs Verbs in Spanish end in -ar, -er or -ir. Before a verb is conjugated, it is call ed the infinitive. Removing the last two letters gives you the stem of the verb (cantar is to sing, cant- is the stem.) To conjugate regular verbs in the present tense, add these endings to the stems: -ar -er -ir o amos o emos o imos as is es is es s a an e en e en

Remember that verbs do not require the subject pronouns, so just canto means I s ing. Here are some more regular verbs: -ar verbs

-er verbs -ir verbs bailar to dance

aprender to learn vivir to live desear to want

comer to eat escribir to write escuchar to listen

correr to run compartir to share estudiar to study

leer to read recibir to receive

hablar to speak

vender to sell

practicar to practice

beber to drink

tomar to take

comprender to understand

viajar to travel

To make sentences negative, simply put no in front of the verb.

28. Reflexive Verbs The subject and the object are the same with reflexive verbs - the subject acts upon itself. A reflexive verb in Spanish will be marked with se attached to the end of the infinitive. Th ese verbs are conjugated like regular verbs, except the reflexive pronoun agrees with case and gender and precedes the verb when not used in the infinitive form. Reciprocal verbs are the same as reflexive except the action passes from one person to another. It can only be used in the first and t hird person plural forms. Reflexive verbs sometimes use the "-self" forms in English, while the rec iprocal verbs use "each other." Reflexive Pronouns me te se nos os se

Some common reflexive verbs:

acostarse - to go to bed baarse - to bathe oneself casarse - to get married despertarse - to wake up irse - to go away levantarse - to rise sentarse - to sit down vestirse - to dress oneself atreverse - to dare quejarse - to complain

29. Irregularities in Regular Verbs Some verbs have vowel changes in the present tense for all forms except first an d second person plural. After dropping the endings (-ar, -er, or -ir), the e of the last syllabl e changes to ie, and o in the last syllable changes to ue. Some -ir verbs change the e to i. e to ie o to ue e to i pensar - to think querer - to want, like, lovecerrar - to close comenzar - to begin despertar - to awaken empezar - to begin entender - to understandperder - to lose preferir - to prefer sentar - to seat sentir - to regret, feel contar - to count poder - to be able costar - to cost dormir - to sleep encontrar - to find, meetjugar - to play morir - to die mostrar - to show volar - to fly volver - to return pedir - to ask (for) repetir - to repeat seguir - to follow servir - to serve vestir - to dress

pensar contar

pedir pienso piensas piensa pensamospensis piensan cuentocuentascuenta contamoscontis cuentan pidopidespide pedimospdis piden

30. Impersonal "a" When the object of a verb (except tener) is a definite person, it is preceded by a. It isn't used if a number precedes the object though. The pronouns alguien (somebody), alguno (some one), nadie (nobody), and ninguno (no one) require a as well, when used as the direct object . It is also used before geographical names that are not already preceded by an article. Veo a Juan. I see John. Veo a alguien. I see somebody. Describe a Chile. Describe Chile.

31. Preterite Tense The preterite tense expresses an action in the past. It is used to describe even ts that are finished or complete. It is formed by adding these endings to the infinitive stem.

-ar verbs -er and -ir verbs - -aste- -amos-asteis-aron - -iste -i -imos -iste -eron

Viv en Espaa dos aos. I lived in Spain for two years. Ellos hablaron con los nios. They spoke with the children. Quin comi la fruta? Who ate the fruit?

32. Irregular Preterite Tense A few verbs are irregular in the preterite tense. The following are the most com mon: dar - to give decir - to say, tell estar - to be di diste di dimos disteis dieron dije dijiste dijo dijimos dijisteis dijeron estuve estuvisteestuvo estuvimos estuvisteis estuvieron

hacer - to do, make ir - to go / ser- to be poner - to put, place hice hiciste hizo hicimos hicisteis hicieron fui fuiste fue fuimos fuisteis fueron puse pusiste puso pusimos pusisteis pusieron tener - to have traer - to bring venir - to come tuve tuviste tuvo tuvimos tuvisteis tuvieron traje trajiste trajo trajimos trajisteis trajeron vine viniste vino vinimos vinisteis vinieron

33. Imperfect Tense The imperfect is another past tense that is used to express an action as going o n in the past, as repeated or habitual. It is also used with mental and physical conditions and fo r descriptions. The preterite tense is used much more often than the imperfect tense though, except with these verbs: querer, creer, pueder, esperar, tener, and saber. It is formed by adding these e ndings to the infinitive stem. -ar verbs -er and -ir verbs -aba-abas-aba -bamos-abais -aban -a -as -a -amos -ais -an

Yo viva en Espaa. I used to live in Spain. Luisa estaba triste. Louise was sad. El venda radios. He was selling radios. Only a few verbs are irregular in the imperfect tense: ser - to be ir - to go ver - to see era ramos iba bamos vea veamos

eras era erais eran ibasiba ibais iban veasvea veais vean

35. Gustar Gustar plus a noun means to like something. Literally, it means to please and ta kes an indirect object, so the construction of the sentence will be different than that of English. Me gusta(n) I like Nos gusta(n) we like Te gusta(n) you like Os gusta(n) you like

Le gusta(n) you/he/she likes Les gusta(n) you/they like

Gusta is used with singular nouns, while gustan is used with plural nouns. With le and les, you can add a Ud., a l, a ella, a Uds., a ellos and a ellas to make the meaning clear. Me gustan las flores. I like the flowers. (Literally: To me are pleasing the flo wers or the flowers are pleasing to me.) Nos gusta la casa. We like the house. No me gusta. I don't like it. Le gusta a Ud.? Do you like it? Le gustan a ella. She likes them.

37. To Take or Drink tomar - to take or drink tomo tomas toma tomamos tomis toman

When tomar means to drink, it usually refers to alcohol. In Mexico, tomar can be intransitive, as beber is almost never used. In Spain, tomar is always transitive, such as tomar una co pa- to have a drink and tomar un caf - to have a coffee.

38. Commands To form familiar commands, regular -ar verbs end in -a, and -er and -ir verbs en d in -e for the t form. Change the final -r to -d for the vosotros form. Negative familiar commands use the subjunctive forms, so -ar verbs end in -es and -is, while -er and -ir verbs end in -as and -is for the t and vosotros forms.

Affirmative Negative

-ar -er or -ir -ar -er or -ir t -a -e -es -as vosotros -ad -ed -is -is

Habla! = Speak! (t form) Comed! = Eat! (vosotros form)

No comis! = Don't eat! (negative vosotros form) Irregular Familiar Commands

t vosotros

decir hacer ir irse poner salir ser tener venir di haz ve vete pon sal s ten ven decid haced id idos poned salid sed tened venid

To form formal commands of verbs, drop the -o ending of the yo form, and add the opposite vowel ending. This means -ar verbs will add -e for the Usted form and -en for the Uste des form; while -er and -ir verbs will add -a for Usted and -an for Ustedes. To make a command negat ive, just add no before it.

-ar -er or -ir Usted -e -a Ustedes -en -an

Beba! = Drink! (Usted form) Coman! = Eat (Ustedes form) No beban! = Don't drink! (negative Ustedes form) Ir and ser have irregular forms as formal commands: vaya and vayan for ir and se a and sean for ser. Verbs that end in -car, -gar and -zar have the following changes in commands as well: c becomes qu, g becomes gu, and z becomes c.

39. More Negatives To make sentences negative, you place no before the verb. Other negatives may pr ecede or follow the verb, but if they follow, they must follow a negative verb (a double negativ e). The word order is no + verb + negative. nada nadie ninguno (a) tampoco ni ni...ni ni siquiera nunca, jams nothing, (not) anythingnobody, (not) anybodyno, none neither, either nor neither... nor not even never, ever

Nunca means ever when it follows a comparative; jams means ever when it follows a n affirmative verb.

Feliz Navidad Merry Christmas Feliz Ao Nuevo Happy New Year Feliz Cumpleaos Happy Birthday

Mexican National Anthem: Mexicanos, al Grito de Guerra by Francisco Gonzlez Bocanegra Mexicanos, al grito de guerra El acero aprestad y el bridn; y retiemble en sus centros la tierra Al sonoro rugir del can. Cia oh patria! tus sienes de oliva De la Paz el arcngel divino, Que en el cielo tu eterno destino Por el dedo de Dios se escribi. Mas si osare un extrao enemigo Profanar con su planta tu suelo, Piensa oh patria querida! que el cieloUn soldado en cada hijo te dio. Guerra, guerra sin tregua al que intente De la patria manchar los blasones! Guerra, guerra! Los patrios pendonesEn las olas de sangre empapad. Guerra, guerra! En el monte, en el valle Los caones horrsonos truenen Y los ecos sonoros resuenen Con las voces de Unin! Libertad! Antes, patria, que inermes tus hijos Bajo el yugo su cuello dobleguen, Tus campias con sangre se rieguen, Sobre sangre se estampe su pie. Y tus templos, palacios y torres Se derrumben con hrrido estruendo, Y sus ruinas existan diciendo: De mil hroes la patria aqu fue. Patria! patria! Tus hijos te juran Exhalar en tus aras su aliento, Si el clarn con su blico acento Los convoca a lidiar con valor. Para ti las guirnaldas de oliva! Un recuerdo para ellos de gloria! Un laurel para ti de victoria!

Un sepulcro para ellos de honor! Mexicanos, al grito de guerra El acero aprestad y el bridn, Mexicans, at the cry of battle lend your swords and bridle; and let the earth tremble at its center upon the roar of the cannon. Your forehead shall be girded, oh fatherland, with olive garlands by the divine archangel of peace, For in heaven your eternal destiny has been written by the hand of God. But should a foreign enemy Profane your land with his sole, Think, beloved fatherland, that heaven gave you a soldier in each son. War, war without truce against who would attempt to blemish the honor of the fatherland! War, war! The patriotic banners saturate in waves of blood. War, war! On the mount, in the vale The terrifying cannon thunder and the echoes nobly resound to the cries of union! liberty! Fatherland, before your children become unarmed Beneath the yoke their necks in sway, May your countryside be watered with blood, On blood their feet trample. And may your temples, palaces and towers crumble in horrid crash, and their ruins exist saying: The fatherland was made of one thousand heroes here. Fatherland, fatherland, your children swear to exhale their breath in your cause, If the bugle in its belligerent tone should call upon them to struggle with bravery. For you the olive garlands! For them a memory of glory! For you a laurel of victory! For them a tomb of honor! Mexicans, at the cry of battle lend your swords and bridle; and let the earth tremble at its center

y retiemble en sus centros la tierra Al sonoro rugir del can. upon the roar of the cannon.

If you're wondering why I didn't include the Spanish national anthem, it's becau se the anthem has no words; it's all instrumental.

It is also used after a passive verb to indicate the agent (by) and estar por + infinitive indicates what remains to be done or t o be in favor of. por el pueblo through the town por la maana in the morning Pag un peso por el libro. He paid a dollar for the book. Se vendre por libras. It's sold by the pound. Voy por tren. I'm going by train. Voy por Alicia. I'm going for Alice. Vot por Juanita. I voted for Juanita.

61. Object Pronouns Subject Direct Indirect Object of Prepositions yo I

me me me to me m me t you te you te to you ti you l he/it le, lo him/it le to him/it l him/it ella she/it la her/it le to her/it ella her/it

Usted you le, la you le to you Usted you nosotros (as) we nos us nos to us nosotros (as) us vosotros (as) you os you os to you vosotros (as) you Ustedes you les, los, las you les to you

Ustedes you ellos (as) they los them les to them ellos (as) them

1. An object pronoun generally precedes the conjugated verb, except if is used i n an affirmative command, with an infinitive or gerund. Then it is attached to the verb as one wo rd. Dme Ud. el libro. Give me the book. 2. When you have more than one pronoun, the indirect comes before the direct. If both pronouns begin with the letter l, then the first one is changed to se. 3. When one or two object pronouns follow and are attached to the verb form, an accent mark must be added to retain the original stress of the word. 4. For clearness or emphasis, the prepositional form of a plus an object of a pr eposition may be used. Nos envi a Ud. He sent us to you.

62. Parts of the Body hand foot ear eye tongue face hair nose tooth lip stomach la mano el pie la oreja el ojo la lengua la cara el cabello la nariz

el diente el labio el estmago mouth finger fingernail elbow arm knee leg head neck shoulder throat la boca el dedo la ua el codo el brazo la rodilla la pierna la cabeza el cuello el hombro la garganta

To express pain, use an indirect object pronoun + duele(n) + body part. Me duele la cabeza. My head hurts. Le duelen los pies. His feet hurt.

63. Asking Questions Simply raise your voice at the end of the sentence. Place the predicate in front of the subject of the sentence. Add no? or verdad? or no es verdad? to the end of the statement. These translate to many phrases in English, such as Isn't it? Aren't you? Don't you? Didn't he? Isn't she? etc.

65. Relative Pronouns A relative pronoun connects a dependent clause to a main clause and refers to so mething already mentioned (the antecedent.) This pronoun may serve as the subject or object of a verb, or the object of a preposition. Que and quien are the most commonly used relative pronouns. Que (who, whom, that, which) refers to persons or things, except after a preposi tion, when it refers to things only. El que (and its forms - la que, los que, las que) and el cual (and its forms - la cual, los cuales, las cuales) may replace que or quien. These pronouns are used for clearn ess when there are two antecedents, and with prepositions. La casa en que vivo es pequea. The house in which I live is small. He visitado la ciudad cerca de la cual vive. I visited the city near which he li ves. Quien n, it Quien s one etc. (-es) (who) is used in a supplementary clause. When used with a prepositio means whom. (-es) is often used in place of el que and its forms as well, when it mean who, those who,

Lo que and lo cual (which) refer to the whole sentence. Cuyo (-a, -os, -as) is a possessive adjective and it agrees in gender and number with the thing possessed, which is always the word that follows it.

66. Disjunctive Pronouns Disjunctive pronouns are used independently of the verb. They are the pronouns w

hich follow prepositions, or show emphasis. m ti l ella Usted nosostros (-as) vosotros (-as) ellos ellas Ustedes

Ello is also used as a neuter pronoun meaning it. S can mean yourself, himself, h erself, yourselves or themselves. When con combines with m, ti or s, the words become conmigo, contig o and consigo. For clearness, the forms of mismo (-a, -os, -as) can be added to these pronouns.

69. Past Perfect The past perfect tense corresponds to the English "had + past participle." It in dicates an event that happened prior to another event in the past. It consists of the imperfect of hab er and a past participle. Sometimes the preterite of haber is used, but the imperfect is more common.

Carlos haba vivido en Mxico. Carlos had lived in Mexico. Habamos aprendido el espaol. We had learned Spanish.

70. Suffixes Suffixes may be attached to nouns, adjectives or adverbs. Unaccented vowels shou ld be dropped before adding the suffixes. The most common suffixes are -ito (a) and -cito (a). They express size, affection, admiration, appreciation or pity. The ending -ero (a) indicates the m aker or dealer in charge of something. To indicate where something is made or sold, add -era. When -eza an d -ura are added to adjectives, they express abstract nouns. When -dor is added to a verb (minus the final letter), it indicates the performer of the action.


71. Adverbs Most adverbs are formed by adding -mente to the feminine singular form of the ad jective. However, two common adverbs that do not end in -mente are despacio (slowly) and demasiado (too much). Adjective Adverb

correcto facil claro absoluto rapido correctamentefacilmente claramente absolutamenterapidamente correctly easily clearly absolutelyrapidly

Lo + adverb + que expresses how, while lo mas + adverb + an expression of possib ility is translated: as ... as ... lo bien que how well lo mas pronto posible as soon as possible

72. Passive Voice In passive sentences, the subject receives the action of the verb. In active sen tences, the subject does the action. However, the meaning of both sentences is the same. The passive voice in Spanish is formed with a tense of ser and a past participle. Ser should be in the same t ense as the verb in its corresponding active sentence. The agent is expressed by por if the action is ph ysical; and by de if mental. The past participle agrees in gender and number with the subject. If you use estar instead of ser, the past participle is called the predicate adjective and it is not a passi ve sentence.

Active El viento destrue la casa. The wind destroys the house. Passive La casa fue destruida por el viento. The house was destroyed by the wind. Predicate Adjective Cuando la vi, la casa estaba destruida. When I saw it, the house was destroyed.

El nino fue castigado por su padre. The boy was punished by his father. Rosa es amada de todos. Rose is loved by everyone.

73. Uses of the Infinitive

The infinitive is translated as a gerund (the -ing form of the verb) after these words: el, al, a preposition, ver or or. El correr es buen ejercicio. Running is good exercise. Parto sin hablar. He left without speaking. Oigo cantar a Maria. I hear Maria singing.

account la cuenta

76. Conditional Tense The conditional tense expresses an idea dependent on a condition that is either expressed or understood. It can also refer to the past when it expresses probability. To form the present conditional, add these endings to the infintive for all thre e types of verbs. Verbs that had irregular stems in the future tense, also use that stem for the conditi onal tense. -a -amos

-as-a -ais -an

77. Infinitives followed by Prepositions The following verbs require a, de, en or con when followed by another infinitive , although the preposition is not always translated into English. Verb + a + another infinitive

Verb + de + another infinitive acostumbrarse aprender atreverse ayudar comenzar convidar decidirse dedicarse empezar ensear invitar ir negarse persuadir principiar rehusar resignarse resistirse resolverse venir volver to to to to to to to to to to to to to to become used toto learn to dare to help begin to invite to decide to devote oneself begin to teach to invite go to refuse to persuade to

80. Subjunctive Mood The subjunctive is not used very often in English, but is is very common and imp ortant in Spanish. Some command forms are actually the subjunctive, so the formation of the present subjunctive should not be too difficult. Present Subjunctive -ar verbs -er and -ir -e -es -e -emos-is -en -a -as -a -amos-is -an

The past subjunctive is formed from the third person plural of the preterite. Re move the -on ending, and add these new endings: Past Subjunctive all verbs

-a -as-a amos-ais -an

An accent is added to the stem vowel as well in the first person plural form. In stead of hablaramos, it is hablramos; instead of comieramos, it is comiramos, etc. Note that there is another way to form the past subjunctive (a different set of endings), but the endings given are used mo re often. The present perfect subjunctive is formed with the present subjunctive of haber and the past participle of the main verb. Similarly, the past perfect subjunctive is formed with the pas t subjunctive of haber and the past participle of the main verb. Present perfect subjunctive

Past perfect subjunctive haya hayas haya hayamos hayis hayan + past participle

trajera trajeras trajera trajramos trajerais trajeran viniera vinierasviniera viniramos vinierais vinieran

82. Uses of the Subjunctive The main uses of the subjunctive include:

When one person tells (decir) or asks (pedir) another person to do something. 3. After expressions of emotion, such as esperar (to hope), sentir (to be sorry) , temer (to fear), alegarse (to be glad), when there is a change of subject. 4.

85. Other Perfect Tenses Beside the present and past perfect tenses, there are also the preterite, future

and conditional perfect tenses. All are conjugated with a form of haber and a past participle. The preterite perfect is formed with the preterite of haber + past participle, a nd it has the same meaning as the past perfect. But this tense is normally only used after conjunct ions of time, such as as que, luego que, tan pronto como (as soon as); cuando (when); despus (de) que (a fter); and hasta que (until). The future perfect is formed with the future of haber + past participle and is a lso used to express probability, referring to the present. The conditional perfect is formed with the conditional of haber + past participl e and is also used to express probability, referring to the past.
